Abstract

Since the completion of Taipei 101 Tower in 2004, the first supertall building exceeding 500 m, construction of supertall buildings is booming all around the world, especially in China. Data from the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH, http://ctbuh.org/) in 2012 indicates that before 2000, the average height of the first 20 tallest buildings in the world was approximately 375 m; yet by 2010, the average height had increased to 439 m. Amazingly, the average height of the first 20 tallest buildings is projected to reach 598 m by 2020.
